Cerberus is a level 318 hellhound boss that is located in her lair deep beneath the Taverley Dungeon in the cave entrance in the north-east part of the hellhound area which is found beyond the poisonous spiders. Cerberus requires a Slayer level of 91, along with a task of hellhounds or herself in order to be fought.
Cerberus drops three different crystals; the eternal, pegasian and primordial crystals which are used to upgrade infinity, ranger and dragon boots to the eternal, pegasian and primordial boots respectively, the best-in-slot boots for their respective combat styles. She can also drop the smouldering stone at a much better rate compared to her lesser brethren, along with the hellpuppy pet.
When approaching her, Cerberus will become aggressive. She may attack with magic, ranged and melee attacks, each with a max hit of 23. The magic attack appears as a grey ball, the ranged attack appears as a ball of spikes, and the melee attack is her biting. Interestingly, she may use the melee attack at range.
Cerberus has three special attacks that she may use under certain circumstances:
The main technique will be to pray mage for the entire fight. When you see the ghosts come in (signified by Cerb saying “arrrooo”) you should switch to the pray for the first enemy. You should then switch when you see their attack animation start.
The second technique, for those with significantly more powerful gear, is to simply tank the hits and only pray mage.
Cerberus is located in Taverly Dungeon. The entrance can be accessed by teleporting to Taverley in the City teleports and then running South. Climb down the ladder into the dungeon. Run North and jump accross the spikes to the West. Run North and enter the Cave entrance on the East wall. Run North and pull the winch to open the gate and enter Cerberus' Lair.
